    Help Me!

    Advertisement



    I know this sounds like I've gone mad but I really do need some help from likeminded people.

    I'm able to get a new free Blackberry from my provider. The options are
    8120 or 8310

    I know 1 has wifi and the other GPS and needless to say to difference in keys but which one???
    I've ever really used mobile wifi or GPS so have no preference.
    I've got and love a 8100 and unlike before wish to pick a Blackberry to use for longer than 12 months.

    Whifi? Or GPS? Really that is the question. Why one may be better than the other?
    Both are well Blackberry so both have the design, build etc but difference in 2 major parts!

    Please help? I really don't know which one to pick

    do you have a car? do you drive a lot in unfamiliar places? If thats the case, maybe GPS is best.

    I would recomend wifi, if you have a wireless lan at home or travel a lot and use airport wireless zones..

    GPS = Global Positioning System

    WIFI = internet acess

    I personally have no use for GPS and a lot of people already have these in their cars (sat Nav)

    You can always get a bluetooth gps puck and add gps to your device if you want to. Can't just go out and buy a wifi chip and slap it in.

    Microsoft has a great program that is streets and maps and has a PHAROS bluetooth gps adapter. Its the size of a credit card.

    Keep in mind, the new google maps uses cell phone tower triangulation to pinpoint your location. It isn gps,but its pretty accurate. www.google.com/gmm
